They have to have more in back. I know I've gone in the morning and cleaned them out of it and they have more on the shelf the next day.

I can't control what you do to your car but I would advise not doing your airbag. I went to school for collision repair and whenever you paint, dye, etc. to an airbag it can affect the way it deploys.

Racing stripes:



Opinions please. I am going to order a couple more cans of white becasue I need to touch them up a bit. My first stripe came out absolutely perfectly, no drips and nice and even until I did the second stripe and covered it with newspaper. The ink of the paper affected it somehow. Then rubbing the spots with white dip on my finger did not help. I want to gloss over them anyway. The second stripe, I got a bit happy with the spray and the bottom dripped a bit. Also when I was taping the paper and tape off, a piece blew into it and messed up the even finish.
My question is, do you think they are too close together on the hood? The stripes are about 5.5 inches with about an inch between them. I was possibly thinking of redoing them a tad further apart and bit closer to the windshield washer things on the hood. Granted I think the stripe looks really cool on the curved part of the hood by the ford emblem. For now I just want to respray them a bit and add some gloss. Also . . .

Fixed badges:



The badges ended up being a bitch mainly do the the sticking apparatus on the back of the badges. The badges are no where uniform to the back of the car. The dip was bonding beneath and behind the damn letters. They came out ok. Also redid the grill part by the ford emblem and I managed to chip some of that off when I was taking off the excess. I blame to much spray and bubbles on the bottom again. No time to mess with the fangs at all though. GOtta learn to back off just a tad. Also spray the can upside down after your coat when letting it dry, becasue the hardened paint really messes with the spray pattern the next time you go to use it, lol
